Just wanted to put in a good word for this neglected 1st century AD strategy title. I don't think it got much attention when released around 9 months ago--despite being developed by Pyro, the folks who do the Commandos games--and I was ready to be disapointed when I finally got a chance to check it out last weekend.
But I've found it addictive. The scenrios are well thought out; it's easy to play, yet hard to play well; the AI isn't bad; it's attractive (3D, but with a 2D-ish defauilt POV); and, without using a patch (not sure if there is one) I haven't had a single technical problem. Recommended.
I remember being underwhelmed by the demo, though the game itself was welcomed with mostly warm reviews, I think.
And isn't it 1st century BC? The conquest of Gaul and all that...
Quite right, B.C. :)
I had the same feelings about the demo. If they'd relesed the tutorial missions instead, I might have felt differently.
I couldnt find any enjoyment in this title at all. Seemed to be a strange mish-mash of genres too.
